Ozawa, looking better, accepts Japanese 'Nobel'

Pictures have just come online of the Japanese conductor Seiji Ozawa receiving the Premium Imperiale culture award, sometimes referred to as the Japanese Nobel. He shared it with Anish Kapoor, Ricardo Legorreta, Bill Viola and (below) the British actress Judi Dench.

Ozawa’s August comeback from cancer treatment ended after one performance of Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle and the cancellation of a China tour.
